    Brian has provided an expertly structured approach to creating and reporting on the value stream organization. He has helped us understand and overcome many of our own barriers to lean improvement. I highly recommend his services to organizations wanting to support and expand their lean initiatives with reporting of quality, fact-based data.

    If you are interested in understanding how your organization can fully realize the benefit that lean promises, or you simply want to improve the effectiveness of your continuous improvement efforts, you need to look no further than Brian Maskell. From our earliest work with Brian on eliminating wasteful traditional accounting methods, to our more recent efforts in understanding economic decision making in new product development and portfolio management, Brian has been an invaluable partner in helping us find our way to the next breakthrough in business performance. Ever true to the lean principles, but equally pragmatic in their application, Brian’s knowledge, creativity, quick wit and accessible style make even the dullest discussions of transactional waste elimination a thing to look forward to. I have worked with a wide variety of lean consultants and practitioners over the years, but I have yet to encounter anyone more knowledgeable in Value Stream Management than Brian Maskell. I simply can’t recommend him highly enough.
